Above and Beyond Creative Sewing ensures that sewing enthusiasts of all experience levels have the tools to practice their craft. That means not only equipping them with quality machines from Pfaff and Singer, but also giving them access to classes that advance their technique. The venue welcomes sewers with a large, open work area, where the shop's resident experts draw upon more than two decades of experience to conduct group classes or lend advice to crafters stuck on complicated projects. For those who prefer to work at home or have sewn their front door shut, the experts also offer free support over the phone from 7 a.m. until 11 p.m.
